BOOM! Alabama governor SIGNS pro-life bill INTO LAW!!

And all across the land there were heard loud “plops” as millions of liberals’ pointy empty heads imploded into nothingness.

From the Hill:

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) signed a law banning abortion in almost all cases, but noted that the ban is unenforceable.

“To the bill’s many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God,” Ivey said in a statement.

“To all Alabamians, I assure you that we will continue to follow the rule of law.”

The ban, which is the nation’s most restrictive, would prohibit abortion in nearly all cases, including rape or incest.

Alabama’s state legislature sent the bill to Ivey’s desk Tuesday, drawing rebukes from 2020 Democratic presidential candidates and other national politicians.



I think there was some tiny hope among the left that she would not sign the bill, but they were wrong. However, there’s this bizarre little bit:

Ivey wrote in a statement Wednesday that the bill “closely resembles” an unenforceable abortion ban that has been part of Alabama law for more than 100 years.

“No matter one’s personal view on abortion, we can all recognize that, at least for the short term, this bill may similarly be unenforceable,” she said.

Why is it unenforceable? In any case, it is done, and liberals are crying, and that makes me happy.

Earlier she wouldn’t say if she would sign it or not:

Odd.

  1. I am so afraid this is going to lose the election and keep Trump from transforming the court so that Roe can actually be overturned.

    That Alabama law is just full of holes. The other states are doing a much better job of actually trying to do the job… Alabama seems to want a fight. I think they don’t get that not being right on the science makes your moral position less.

    We have the moral high ground on this issue, unless you throw in a bunch of junk science then we just look like zealots.

    1. What do you see as the “holes” and “junk science” in this Alabama law? I am aware of them defining all unborn human life as persons deserving of legal protection, which seems sound to me.

  2. God bless you, Governor! This woman is brave for standing up for what is right. Let the demons gnash their teeth! Christians have read the end of the book and we win!!

  3. The problem I see with these bills is they are giving the libs a hot social topic to rally around. Libs vote social issues, conservative typically don’t. Hopefully this doesn’t pull the attention of those benefiting in their wallets from the current administrations policies.

  4. What Jesse said!! :flash:

    Want to know why conservatives haven’t conserved anything and government has only grown for the last 100 years? Look no further than the “I’m pro-life, but ___” crowd today. Conservatives are so beaten down, they’re flat out uncomfortable with a clean win. Battered Wife Syndrome.

    If you call yourself “pro-life”, but you can’t find the balls to defend a bill protecting the sanctity of life in the womb, kindly make your way to the sidelines and grab some pom poms. You’re useless on the field. That’s all.

    1. @homer Yeah, Pat Robertson just came out against the Alabama bill for that very reason.

      1. @Chow I hope that it passes. It’s good to see states rebelling against their federal overlords.

  7. I am so afraid this is going to lose the election and keep Trump from transforming the court so that Roe can actually be overturned.

    1. American short term memory won’t allow it to be an issue. Trump says something, boom… forgotten. Still waiting on the Net Neutrality wave to happen. Or the transgender bathroom laws wave. Or America pulling out of the U.N. Arms Treaty wave. Etc…

      1. This is not a short term memory issue. People are still debating and arguing Roe v. Wade and that decision was made nearly 50 years ago. This one is NOT going away.

        1. As an election issue, I disagree. No doubt Rowe v Wade has been an ongoing fight. The law may not even hold up in court. But as an election issue I don’t think it’ll hold. Firstly, it’s a state law. Trump has nothing to do with it. And the public in general aren’t affected by it. Only Alabama is. Secondly, as I stated, Trump is giving them new stuff to lose their minds over every week. I’ll bet at this moment a lot of Californians are concentrated on the money for the high speed rail Trump is denying them more than Alabama’s bill. They’ll fling their arms and throw their poop in their handmaid outfits for a few weeks like the chimps they are, then something else will trigger them.

    2. What do you see as the “holes” and “junk science” in this Alabama law? I am aware of them defining all unborn human life as persons deserving of legal protection, which seems sound to me.

  8. It looks more and more like this law will not stand and the Supreme Court might not even address it.

    BUT it still could be a victory because for a change, OUR SIDE is employing the “Overton Window” strategy to push our agenda in our direction.

    1. I was discussing the Overton Window with my wife yesterday. Unfortunately because we are talking about lives and not liberal pet idealogies, we have to flip the script in the case of abortion.

      Its 18 months to the election. Folks will not be thinking about Alabama anymore but I hope what Alabama is doing will weaken the enemy’s resolve against the other bills going forward in other states.

  9. This is a States Rights issue and should have always been. Roe vs Wade is one of the worst examples of what happens when the federal government gets involved.

    1. would you feel the same way if there was federal legislation banning abortion nationwide?

    2. True. This law doesn’t address a person’s right but the doctor’s right to perform a murderous procedure.

      Alabama is just saying they want their state licensed physicians to abide by their oath. If a woman chooses to have an abortion they can go to California or Washington or New York where there will always be murderous doctors available.

  10. Enforce it until the injunction comes, which unfortunately will be soon.

    I do wonder if it was wise to do this now though. There are way too many hopes being placed on Kavanaugh and Roberts. I believe they are “personally against” abortion, but I do not have confidence that they have the daring to end Roe. Especially Roberts. I pray for them every day, that they would hear God speaking and would find the strength to follow His will on this, the most fundamental issue in our nation.

    I fear if they don’t, then the ruling will just further cement the evil via ‘precedent.’ I wish we had an additional spot on the bench first, like Barrett.

    1. I still stand by my prediction that RBG will be gone before the end of the year. If that happens and Trump puts Barrett on the court, then I think it has a good chance of success. It may take till after the election to get it done, which should encourage our side to get out and vote.

    2. Thank you for the prayer reminder. We should be praying for our opponents as well as our friends. They need to hear God’s voice, too.

      “It is never the wrong time to do the right thing.” (I hope.)

  11. The issue isn’t even abortion. The issue is states rights…and how Roe v Wade violated the Constitution.

  12. I dare the pro-abortion leftists to take this through the legal process & explain to a court how abortion isn’t taking a life when science is finally on the pro-life side

    1. the courts have nothing to do with “the science” one way or another. it is an open question whether this course has moved far enough right to strike down Roe. If a case like this comes up and loses, it could set things for quite a while.

  13. This particular bill is counter productive to actually ending abortion in America… not all success is actually success. I haven’t read it all, but I read some of it, and it’s really not serious.

    Even Pat Robertson says this is an ill conceived bill that will set back the pro-life movement.

    This is a prime example of Republicans being their own worst enemy. So much good was possible, and they put up a totally unserious bill not even based in the actual good science available.

  14. If leftists were honest:

    There goes a woman’s right to kill her baby as guaranteed in the Constitution!

    1. I imagine the psychological representation of the internal dialogue of a leftist being something akin to the County Fair from Hell..complete with a demon clown operating the whole damn thing.

  16. Thank you Kay Ivey for signing, it’s going to be baby steps to undo the ‘preventable’ massacre of human life.

  17. Someone probably already has a lawsuit ready to go. 3………2……….1………….

    1. It’s probably already been filed. Which is probably why this is currently “unenforceable”.

    2. sounds like Alabama isn’t going to enforce it, and without enforcement a lawsuit probably won’t stand.

  18. Before we pop the champagne corks, we must remember that this is only a “temporary” measure as it is destined for the Supreme Court. Let us hope and pray they do the right thing.

    1. That is exactly what it is designed for to get Roe V Wade back in front of the SCOTUS.

  19. Weren’t there two states that quickly jumped on passing extreme pro-abortion laws? Seems like they’ve kicked off a firestorm of other states taking the gloves off. There are a lot more states that will go pro-life than pro-abortion.

    Maybe this will push all the crazy liberals out of conservative states into the few states they own. I’m fine with that. Send us all the conservatives out of those states and it’s all good.

  21. Why is it unenforceable?

    I don’t think she means unenforceable so much as it means ridiculously difficult to enforce. I mean, it’s not like we’re going to be setting up stakeouts at hospitals to catch doctors in the act. And medical privacy laws mean that doctors don’t have to disclose what their patients won’t volunteer. Far as the State will be able to tell, women will go into a medical building and then come back out again. Not exactly much to build a case on.

    What would be really interesting is to see how this would go down if a whistleblower alerted the cops to someone who performed an abortion.

    1. @at That’s not true. The police can get your medical records with a warrant. If they suspect a doctor I’m sure they can get a warrant for his records as well. Additionally, there are always stings and people that rat them out.

      1. The police can get your medical records with a warrant. If they suspect a doctor I’m sure they can get a warrant for his records as well.

        What would be the basis of probable cause? What, are we going to start following pregnant women around to see if they arouse suspicion by suddenly not being pregnant? (Mind you, in most abortions the woman isn’t even showing or significantly showing when the abortion occurs.)

        Additionally, there are always stings and people that rat them out.

        Well that’s why I asked about the whistleblowers. That’d be a hell of a case.

    2. Two points. One, if any public money is accepted by a facility then financial audits can be performed by the state. The facility can either be honest and disclose if abortions have or have not been taking place or suffer the consequences of financial fraud.
      Two, somebody at some point will bring a class action suit in the name of all the dead humans that were aborted. This is not unlike animal activists bringing lawsuits in the name of voiceless animals.

      1. One, if any public money is accepted by a facility then financial audits can be performed by the state. The facility can either be honest and disclose if abortions have or have not been taking place or suffer the consequences of financial fraud.

        I don’t think they have to say Doctor X performed 10 abortions, Doctor Y performed 15 abortions, etc.

        If a murder happens in a room full of people, you can’t just charge them all with murder. You have to figure out which person(s) did it. That’s the part that the facility doesn’t necessarily have to volunteer.

        Two, somebody at some point will bring a class action suit in the name of all the dead humans that were aborted. This is not unlike animal activists bringing lawsuits in the name of voiceless animals.

        I don’t understand where you’re going with that point.

        1. I don’t think they have to say Doctor X performed 10 abortions, Doctor Y performed 15 abortions, etc.

          Sure they do. All medical procedures must be documented, from brain surgery and abortions right down to providing a multi-vitamin. And by documented I mean who did the procedure and all medical members in attendance. That’s how they get paid.

          1. Yes, but in disclosing that they performed abortions, or x abortions, they don’t necessarily have to disclose that this doctor did that abortion and that doctor did this abortion. I don’t think the reporting requirements are that specific.

            I could be wrong, but I haven’t heard of that before.

            A financial audit doesn’t mean they have to turn over every single document of every single patient file in the building.

    3. You are not completely right. There are many drugs and procedures that the government regulates very closely. As long as there is a law in place allowing it, the government can intrude very closely into your medical care.

      I think what she is referring to is the fact that this law will be almost immediately tied up in court battles. Exactly as the bill’s authors intended, on their way to the Supreme Court.

  22. This if wonderful news. No doubt there is a bastard on the federal court who is going to show us how fast judicial tyranny jump into action and put a stay on this new law. The body inside their body is not their body.

    1. One question I do have. Who in the heck is that telling the governor to look into the camera? If it was her assistant I hope she gave her an earful at some point and time.

  23. WTH does she mean ‘unenforcable’? Go right to your nearest Planned Parenthood…enforce.

    1. Unfortunately, this bill being written by the Alabama legislators, approved and signed into law by the governor today doesn’t mean abortion will be illegal in Alabama tomorrow. This is a start down a long road of legal battles.
      But the great news is it’s a start and I’m thankful for that.

      1. Look at how “homosexual marriage” came about. First they complained about discrimination. Then they made up stories about suicides caused by intolerance.

        We never made the case against it, only offering compromises like civil unions.

        The roles are now reversed. We have the moral high ground and the killers can’t justify their killing. First we make abortionists pariahs and then the legislation will follow.

  24. This is a world-class precedent! I’m thrilled this is now law! Kudos!

    Now enforce it!!!

  25. This is a States Rights issue and should have always been. Roe vs Wade is one of the worst examples of what happens when the federal government gets involved.
